Messages in Women’s Music

blanch-dcOn June 14, 2016, the United State of Women was convened by the White House and the First Lady. This Summit rallied all of us together to celebrate what we’ve achieved, and how we’re going to take action moving forward. Covering key gender equality issues, we made a powerful difference in our collective future. A live stream of our inspiring speakers, including First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and more, was live from Washington D.C. #STATEOFWOMEN
LIVE STREAM http://www.theunitedstateofwomen.org/livestream/

I move that women in music be discussed for two reasons:

1) women musicians earn 12% of the $27.5 Billion earned in the Music Business;

2) women musicians earn 64 cents to the dollar that male musicians earn, while women in other fields earn 78 cents.

There is power in the messages in women’s music and it is not tapped into, appropriately. Music changes the world on so many levels. When women’s music is not played on the airwaves, programmed at main events like operas, symphonies, and large festivals, the entirety of mankind suffers. Rather than music that accompanies films that portray murder and mayhem, women’s music can change the fabric of the culture of humankind.

Goddess Awakening

September 12, 2014

Hello, this is Joan.  I’m bringing you peace and love.

It’s always a pleasure to listen to the voices on this call. (www.sovcpr.com)

We have been calling Yah, and calling Yah, and calling Yah. We were instructed that we command the universe. That we can request the guardian to do our bidding, as long as it is good for all of us and for all of human kind. However, we have crossed over into the time of the Divine Feminine. We have negated, omitted, left out the Divine Mother. As long as we continue to do that, we will be in confusion and will not know the answers.

Divine-Feminine

The moment that we turn our eyes to Mother, acknowledge her, she will re-emerged onto the planet. She didn’t leave, she went into obscurity for fifty seven centuries (57,000 years) and ,now, she has re-emerged. Even Father Yah is waiting for us to awaken to the power, to the current, to the energy, to the currency of the Mother. Each women on this call is calling for her.

However, we are not calling with power. We’re calling with tears, we’re calling with faith, we’re calling with hope, but not calling with power. So each woman on this call has a responsibility to awaken to her feminine power. Each man on this call can call to the Mother. When you call to the Mother, healing will take place, immediately.

On October the 11, 2014, the planet will pass through the photon belt and we will be in the fifth dimension, fully. That means that we no longer have to make our transition, die, to be ascended beings. We must awaken to our higher selves, we must call on our Mighty I Am Presence to charge our feeling world with its feeling. So that when we issue the decree we are not affected by the human condition. The human condition is temporary, elusive. It’s an illusion. We are deluded, until we’ve awakened to the power of Mother, Father, All that is.

We are only using part of the power and it is up to each individual human being to awaken to the Divine Feminine, right now. You don’t have anymore time to dwell on the story that you have told. There are no more stories. You keep repeating the same story. You have to write a new story. You have to use your words. You have to use your power. You have to use your currency, your energy. Money is an illusion. It’s only energy.

goddess rebornThe reality is that Gaia is a living, breathing entity. Two weeks ago there was a crack in the surface in Mexico, there was an earthquake in California. There have been several earthquakes, showing that Mother Gaia is breaking up. She just cannot handle you dwelling in the wrong sense any longer.

So, women, awaken to your personal power. Men are waiting for you to awaken. You have been asking questions, you have been relinquishing your own intuition, your own understanding, what you can bring to this story. You keep repeating the same old jargon and it is time for a new Spring.

Symposium on Women in the Arts

symposium-poster-books-art2TALK is cheap. DOING something costs time, money, and THINKING. I’ve been an advocate for women musicians since 1997. I founded a non-profit organization to promote and support women musicians in 2007. This year, we’re calling for a Symposium on Women in the Arts because all people learn through the ARTS. 115 people registered for this symposium to be held in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 @ 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The problem is we tried to hold it at The White House but were denied access. Then, we tried the Library of Congress but they don’t allow groups to hold events during the day. Now, we’re trying George Washington U and Georgetown U but the Women’s Studies Departments at both schools “do not have resources” for this event. It’s ridiculous. Women are marginalized even more than people of color but they just do not see it. They do not receive the financial support earmarked by government funding of the arts. They are omitted from all-male big bands and orchestras. And they don’t fight to make things CHANGE. When women join together to change the world, everything will change. But like the poster above stated, “We have jobs, homes, cars and are ALLOWED to take little breaks (vacations) from time to time so we believe the illusion that we are free.” Women are second class citizens to males, Black and White. The only difference is White males have economic power (especially GAY WHITE MALES, who have no women to answer to or care for). Black males have little economic power but still tend to dominate women. When will women join together to make CHANGE in this world. TALK is cheap. We must DO something. If you are a women artist, author, architect, musician, composer, actress, filmmaker, or other cultural producer, Register for the symposium at the link on this page: http://wijsf.com/events/symposium.htm

Ratify Equal Rights Amendment

Are women in the South just stupid?

WHY has the Equal Rights Amendment not been ratified in these 12 Southern states and 3 Western states?

Somebody please explain this to me. Can women in the South read?

Are they conscious or are they just stupid?

Wake up Southern and Western women. YOU are holding us all back.

Blues Women: First Civil Rights Workers

Blues Women: First Civil Rights Workers
©2014 Joan Cartwright, M.A.

amazing_musicwomen_hardcoverThe African voice inspired instrumentalists. Vocalese was a dialogue between vocalists and instrumentalists. Each person had an individual sound and instrumentalists imitated the voice’s cries, growls, moans, slurs, whispers, shouts and wails. Blues was the element of American subculture created by enslaved Africans, singing European music. Considered crude by classical listeners, Blues liberated singers from precise pitch and calculated rhythms of European music. Black singers emerged from Spirituals and Blues to develop Jazz. Their free-spirited songs delivered messages of liberation, signaling to Africans in America that they could be free. Blues women were the first civil rights workers because their songs symbolized liberty in its rawest form by tapping into the human spirit. Angela Davis recounted Marx and Engles’ observation that art as “a form of social consciousness [awakens] . . . those affected by it to . . . transform their oppressive environments” (Davis, 1999). Blues were popularized by Gertrude “Ma” Rainey (Columbus, GA, September, 1882 – December 22, 1939), The Mother of the Blues (Cartwright, 2008, p. 9). A spokesperson for black people, she was a hero to them. She recorded hundreds of songs on Paramount, putting that recording company on the map. The most popular Blues singers established a rapport and rhetoric with the crowd. Ma Rainey took Bessie Smith under her wing and Blues tradition developed as one followed another.
